Kodachrome Basin Street Park Utah USA

Named by the National Geographic Society for a popular type of camera film – known for its ability to capture brilliant colours – this state park lives up to its moniker.

And the 67 sandstone chimney and pipes here do exude camera-worthy shades of red, pink and white. Sitting at the end of an eight-mile drive off Hwy 12, this remote park is one you can skip if you’re in a hurry, but families may enjoy the horseback rides, which welcome kids 6-years old and above. The three campgrounds have well-spaced sites, many with great views of the rock formations.
